NASA did an experiment with astronauts making them wear glasses with concave lenses that flipped the image of the world upside down to see how they might react to zero gravity. Incredibly, after 25–30 days all the astronauts’ brains flipped the inverted image and they perceived the world the right way up. Interestingly, for some astronauts who took the glasses off for a short time at day 15, it took another 25–30 days for them to experience the correction by their brains. You can’t miss a single day, it’s that important.
Small things done repeatedly over time lead to exceptional results.
It takes 30 days to form a habit, and that’s just the start.
Commit 100% to the 30 days though and my guess is that you’ll be hooked because you’ll have gained momentum.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
In any field, most of the rewards go to the top 5% of people.
I say please to Siri.
If a turkey were to assess the state of the world in early December, they would be forgiven for thinking all is well and that the farmer loves them.
We often compare today’s performance relative to yesterdays.
